The term “Content” includes, without limitation, information, data, text, photographs, videos, audio clips, written posts, articles, comments, software, scripts, graphics and interactive features generated, provided, or otherwise made available through or in connection with the Digital Services. We make no representations or guarantees about any aspect of the Digital Services and Content and do not endorse any opinions expressed by any Users. THE DIGITAL SERVICES AND ALL CONTENT ARE PUBLISHED “AS IS” AND YOUR USE OR RELIANCE ON THE DIGITAL SERVICES OR ANY CONTENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF USING OR RELYING ON THE DIGITAL SERVICES OR ANY CONTENT.
The Digital Services include a platform for vehicle listings and information services. We are not the creator or owner of the items posted on the Digital Services by Sellers for Buyers to bid on. Rather, we provide the Digital Services, which enable Users to access certain features and functionalities, including posting vehicles and other products and services, and bidding on such products and services. Sellers are responsible for ensuring that any of their User Content meets all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that any goods (including vehicles) and services promoted, offered or otherwise described on the Digital Services are described in listings, and/or delivered as described, in an accurate satisfactory manner. For any payment processing related to Purchases made on the Digital Services, if the Seller or third party responsible for the applicable vehicle or other good or service selects a payment processing method that uses a third party to process the payment, then we do not process that payment transaction.
As part of the Digital Services, MBM may assist Sellers in the creation of their listings (including the content of such listing) but it remains each Seller’s responsibility to make sure that its listings are accurate.
MBM IS NOT AN AUTOMOBILE BROKER, DEALER OR TRADITIONAL AUCTIONEER AND WE DO NOT SELL, EXCHANGE, BUY, OR OFFER FOR SALE, NEGOTIATE OR ATTEMPT TO NEGOTIATE, A SALE OR EXCHANGE OF AN INTEREST IN ANY VEHICLE LISTED ON THE DIGITAL SERVICES.

Please take a moment to review our Privacy Notice. The Privacy Notice is incorporated into this Agreement and forms part of the Agreement.
The information you submit to us through the Digital Services, including as part of your account creation, registration or membership, or for any listings, must be truthful, accurate and current. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of such information. If we believe that your information is not truthful, accurate or current, we have the right to terminate, suspend or refuse you access to the Digital Services.

From time to time, the Digital Services may expressly request submissions of concepts, stories, or other potential content from you (“Invited Submissions”). Please carefully read any specific rules or other terms and conditions that appear in connection with such Invited Submissions as such terms and conditions will govern the submissions and may affect your legal rights. If no such additional terms govern those submissions, then this Agreement will apply in full to any Invited Submissions you make. IN ANY EVENT, ANY MATERIAL YOU SEND TO US WILL NOT BE TREATED AS CONFIDENTIAL. Regardless of any industry custom or practice, we will not pay you for the use of any content that you submit to through the Digital Services.
If we become aware of a User’s violation of this Agreement, including the rights of any other User or third party, we may take certain remedial steps, including refusing access to the Digital Services to any person or entity and change eligibility requirements at any time.
If we become aware that any of our Users has repeatedly infringed the proprietary rights of any third party, we may take steps to terminate that User’s access to the Digital Services. We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to review information we obtain from or about you and your use of the Digital Services, to investigate, and/or to take appropriate action against you in our sole discretion.

MBM may suspend any Users whose conduct or postings are under investigation and may remove such material from its servers as it deems appropriate and without notice.

(a) Payment of Fees.
You agree to pay any applicable fees (including any initial deposit made as a Buyer in connection with a bid, certain Buyer’s fees and Seller listing fees set forth on our website in connection with bids or for any purchases you make of any products, features and/or services (“Purchases”) listed on the Digital Services, including, without limitation, any applicable sales, uses or similar taxes or charges. Certain products, fee-based services or features that you purchase, access or download via the Digital Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions presented to you at the time of purchase, access or download.
All payments made by you to MBM shall be facilitated through Authorize.net., MBM’s third party payment processing service. Authorize.net’s terms of service can be found at https://www.authorize.net/about-us/terms. All information that you provide in connection with a Purchase (including any initial deposit made as a Buyer in connection with a bid, certain Buyer’s fees and Seller listing fees) must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by any users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a Purchase on the Digital Services at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You also agree to pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any Purchase.
For any Purchases you make directly from a Seller on or through the Digital Services that involve payment processing, if such Seller selects a payment processing method that uses a third party to process the payment, then we do not process the transaction.
Prices listed for vehicles or any other products or services listed by Sellers on the Digital Services are set by the Sellers and MBM is not responsible setting or negotiating any prices or related fees. Listed prices set by the Sellers on the Digital Services may exclude government fees and taxes, registration and titling fees, regulatory and electronic processing charges, inspection charges, emission testing charges, and any other fees required by law. A Seller may add any or all of the foregoing or any other taxes and fees to the listed price when calculating the final sale price to charge a Buyer.
All amounts listed on the Digital Services are in U.S. dollars.
(b) No Refunds. All Purchases made from a Seller using the Digital Service are between the applicable Buyer and Seller; for that reason, in the event you seek a refund related to a Purchase or have any questions, you must directly contact the applicable Seller.
(c) Bidding and Auction.
(i) Reserve and Publication
In order to use the Digital Services to list a vehicle or other product, a Seller is required to indicate whether there is a minimum price at which the Seller is willing to consider a sale to a Buyer (the “Reserve”) or whether no such minimum bid is required (“No Reserve”). A Seller may reduce or waive a Reserve during the auction by notifying MBM of such change via email or, if available, MBM’s web-based notification tools made available to Seller. MBM will only approve a listing for publication on the Digital Services once a Seller has either selected a Reserve or selected “No Reserve” for the applicable listing.
(ii) Seller Acknowledgment
If you or any other User submits a vehicle or other product or service to sell on the Digital Services, and we accept such vehicle, product or service, then you, or such other User, are considered a “Seller” on the Digital Services. You are responsible in all respects for the User Content and any other information related to any vehicle, product or service you decide to sell. You are also fully responsible in all respects for consummating the transaction with the applicable Buyer in accordance with the Agreement.
IN THE EVENT A USER ACCESSES OR USES THE DIGITAL SERVICES TO SELL A VEHCILE OR OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE AS A “SELLER,” ANY SUCH USER HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT FOLLOWING PUBLICATION AND FOR THE PERIOD THAT SUCH SELLER’S LISTING IS MADE AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE DIGITAL SERVICES, SUCH SELLER MAY NOT LIST, POST OR OTHERWISE MAKE AVAILABLE THE APPLICABLE VEHICLE OR OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE ON ANY OTHER AUCTION, DEALERSHIP, OR LISTING SERVICE. FURTHERMORE, EACH SELLER HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT AT ANY TIME FOLLOWING PUBLICATION, SELLER’S LISTING MAY BE REMOVED BY MBM (IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION).
If a seller does not follow through with a sale as agreed, The MB Market may, at its sole discretion, charge the defaulting seller’s credit card on file in an amount equal to the buyer’s premium (4.5%) for the higher of either: (1) the last bid amount placed on the listing; or (2) the reserve price on the listing.
(iii) Buyer Acknowledgment
Each Buyer acknowledges and agrees that (i) the Buyer fees associated with each bid submitted via the Digital Services are binding and thus due and payable to MBM in accordance with the Agreement, and (ii) Buyer is responsible for all applicable government fees and taxes for applicable vehicles listed via the Digital Services. If you decide to bid on a vehicle that has been listed by a Seller on the Digital Services, you acknowledge and agree that your bid constitutes the first non-binding step in expressing your interest to a Seller in the listed vehicle and does not in and of itself create a formal contract between you as the Buyer and such Seller. It is the responsibility of a Buyer and Seller, respectively, to negotiate the terms of a binding transaction and enter into a formal contract. This contracting is outside of the scope of this Agreement and the Digital Services, neither of which bind the parties to each other. Buyer’s responsibility for any shipping or delivery fees shall be set forth in the formal agreement between the applicable Seller and Buyer.
We do not inspect any vehicles or any other goods that a Seller lists on the Digital Services. You acknowledge and agree that MBM bears no risk associated with purchasing a vehicle from a Seller listed via the Digital Services..
In certain circumstances, following the close of an auction, if no bid has met the Seller’s Reserve, MBM may (in its sole discretion) offer to pay Seller a separate amount to make up the difference between the Reserve and the highest bid (the “Make Whole Amount”); provided, that if MBM provides such Make Whole Amount to Seller in connection with the foregoing, Seller hereby agrees to return to MBM the Make Whole Amount if following such payment, such Seller’s vehicle is not sold to such highest bidder within 30 days. SELLER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE OFFERING OR PROVISION OF SUCH MAKE WHOLE AMOUNT BY MBM TO SELLER IS AN INDEPENDENT TRANSACTION AND DOES NOT IN ANY WAY MAKE MBM A PARTY TO SALE OF THE SELLER’S APPLICABLE VEHICLE OR OTHER TRANSACTION BETWEEN THE SELLER AND THE BUYER.
If you have a dispute with one or more Users of the Digital Services (including merchants) or any other third parties, you release MBM (and its affiliates, service providers, partners, and its and their respective co-branders, licensors, payment processing partners, other partners and officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents) from claims, demands, liabilities, costs, or expenses and damages (actual and consequential of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes). In entering into this release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) to the extent permitted by applicable law that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU HEREBY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542 IN CONNECTION WITH THE FOREGOING, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
You agree to indemnify and hold MBM (and its affiliates, service providers, partners, and its and their respective co-branders, licensors, payment processing partners, other partners and officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents) harmless from any and all damage (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), loss, liability, cost and expenses (including, without limitation, costs and reasonable attorneys’ and accounting fees) resulting from any claim, demand, suit, proceeding (whether before an arbitrator, court, mediator or otherwise) or investigation made by any User or third party (each, a “Claim”) due to or arising out of (a) your use of the Digital Services or Content, (b) information you provide or we obtain about you and your use of the Digital Services, (c) your violation of this Agreement; (d) your violation of applicable laws or regulations or (e) the actions or inactions of any third party to whom you grant permission to use your user account to access the Digital Services (including the sharing of your Credentials). MBM reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Claim for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these Claims. You agree not to settle any matter without the prior written consent of MBM. MBM will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.
THE DIGITAL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” AND WE (AND OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, ACCURACY, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

AS PART OF THE DIGITAL SERVICES, MBM MAY ASSIST SELLERS IN THE CREATION OF THEIR LISTINGS (INCLUDING THE CONTENT OF SUCH LISTING) BUT IT REMAINS EACH SELLER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THAT ITS LISTINGS ARE ACCURATE. WHILE WE TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL INFORMATION (INCLUDING PRICES) ABOUT A VEHICLE OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE MADE AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE DIGITAL SERVICES BY A SELLER ARE COMMUNICATED ACCURATELY, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ERRORS (INCLUDING TYPOGRAPHICAL) THAT MAY APPEAR ON THE DIGITAL SERVICES (INCLUDING IN ANY LISTINGS). IF THERE IS INCORRECT OR MISLEADING INFORMATION GIVEN ABOUT THE PRICE, AVAILABILITY, DESCRIPTION OR CONDITION OF A PRODUCT OR SERVICE (INCLUDING, WITH RESPECT TO VEHICLES POSTED, THE MILEAGE) DUE TO AN ERROR (INCLUDING TYPOGRAPHICAL), MBM IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH ERROR OR ITS CORRECTION BUT WILL ATTEMPT TO CORRECT SUCH ERROR PROMPTLY. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE OR CANCEL ANY LISTINGS FOR VEHICLES OR OTHER PRODUCTS AND SERVICES LISTED WITH INCORRECT OR MISLEADING INFORMATION.
DUE TO THE INHERENT NATURE OF THE INTERNET, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT INFORMATION, DURING TRANSMISSION THROUGH THE INTERNET OR WHILE STORED ON OUR SYSTEMS OR OTHERWISE IN OUR CARE, WILL BE ABSOLUTELY SAFE FROM INTRUSION BY OTHERS. MBM ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR ANY ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DELETION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, HARDWARE OR NETWORK FAILURE, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION OF, ANY USER CONTENT. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF YOU DOWNLOAD ANY MATERIAL, YOU DO SO AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, MBM IS NOT LIABLE, AND YOU AGREE NOT TO HOLD MBM RESPONSIBLE, FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF MONEY, PROFITS, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES OR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES) RESULTING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FROM: (1) YOUR USE OF, OR YOUR INABILITY TO USE OR ACCESS THE DIGITAL SERVICES; (2) DELAYS OR DISRUPTIONS IN THE USE OR ACCESS TO THE DIGITAL SERVICES; (3) VIRUSES OR OTHER MALICIOUS SOFTWARE OBTAINED BY ACCESSING OR USING THE DIGITAL SERVICES; (4) GLITCHES, BUGS, ERRORS, OR INACCURACIES OF ANY KIND IN THE DIGITAL SERVICES; (5) ACTIONS, OR INACTIONS OF OTHER USERS; (6) A SUSPENSION OR OTHER ACTION TAKEN WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USER ACCOUNT; OR (7) YOUR NEED TO MODIFY THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE OR YOUR BEHAVIOR AS A RESULT OF CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT.

24.3 The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and MBM must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in your choice of the following locations: Washington DC, Atlanta, GA or New York, NY. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in New York City, New York. Claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall be exclusively brought in the state and federal courts located in New York City, New York.
No failure or delay by MBM in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power, or privilege under this Agreement.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed solely and exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, USA without giving effect to any law that would result in the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
